Support to Zanzibar Legal Sector Reform Programme

Summary

The legal sector in Zanzibar currently faces numerous shortcomings which were identified in important National documents specifically MkuzaII.

The challenges include inadequate institutional and operational capacity; low public awareness on basic justice process and rights; poor infrastructure; delays in delivery of justice, and poor legal practice and procedures; the sector responds slowly to new social, economic and technological realities; corruption in the legal sector,inadequate legal support, absence framework for managing and coordinating legal training and education. All of these hamper the legal sector's ability to deliver justice efficiently and effectively.

For these challenge to be comprehensively addressed and to address the issue of fragmented donor support there is dire need for a sector-wide and coordinated approach
